The Ruff Fitness Experience

Cutting edge training techniques where you’re not just training, you’re training with purpose!

The Ruff Fitness training protocol, based upon exercise, science, and real life application provides clients with a Nationally Recognized Training Program!

What separates Ruff Fitness from other training? Professionalism, experience, and a passion for teaching the benefits of fitness that you simply cannot get anywhere else!

At Ruff Fitness you will get RESULTS!

Myofascial Release

Every session at Ruff Fitness begins with soft tissue work. The foam roller  breaks up knots in tissue, improves muscle quality, and increases mobility. After just 5 minutes on a foam roller you will feel limber and prepared to perform exercises more effectively.

Dynamic Warm-Up

Focusing on dynamic mobility, Ruff Fitness workouts entail full-body movements where stretches are held for one-two seconds. Dynamic warm-ups produce greater long-term gains in mobility, flexibility, and strength than static stretching or skiping the warm-up altogether.

Metabolic Training

Heart-rate based interval training followed by easy recovery. Ruff Fitness will turbo-charge your fitness level by incorporating short intense periods of cardio, dramatically improving your fitness, torching calories and revving up your metabolism!

Functional Strength

Our bodies are designed to move! At Ruff Fitness we do not isolate muscle groups. We train in terms your body understands: multiple muscles working together as an integrated unit. You’ll save time and get a bigger bang from your workout by training integrated muscle groups.

JT Netterville, Owner of Move Personal Training- Hawaii

When I was young, I was never selected MVP, ALL AREA, ALL COUNTY, or even an ALL STAR. I have never won races, though I have won the occasional tennis tournament or two.  There is absolutely nothing extraordinary about my athleticism! What I found at RUFF FITNESS is the courage to set personal goals and achieve them. I discovered that I am a fighter. I can achieve success in my fitness, which has helped me be to become a better mother, wife, professional, volunteer, and coach. I am eternally grateful to Dave Ruff, Sue Fahey, and their staff for having such a huge positive impact on my life. The greatest gift you can give yourself and your family is the positive fitness experience at RUFF FITNESS. Be prepared to meet the best hour of your day!
